In 1982 The Cure hired Wreckless Eric drummer Steve Goulding for the recording of their single 'Let's Go To Bed', having initial drummer Lol Tolhurst moved onto keyboards.
However, for the band's world 'Top Tour' in 1983 the live line-up featured Andy Anderson on drums.
Steve Goulding's biography, in his own words:
I was born and raised in South London, England. I left school at 18, and worked in a publishing house and also house-cleaning for a couple of years. I played with bassist Andrew Bodnar in a pub rock band called Bontemps Roulez until we joined the Rumour, later Graham Parker's band, in 1975. After the band split in 1981, I played with Garland Jeffreys on his Escape Artist tour, having previously recorded the Escape Artist album with him. Around this time I also played with David Bowie on the Johnny Carson Show at the invitation of GE Smith, who was the guitarist on Garland's album and was playing with Bowie at the time. A stint with the British band the Associates followed, as did a succession of European TV appearances with Roxy Music. A world tour with Lene Lovich led to an audition for Gang Of Four, who I played with for around 18 months until they split. Band connections led to my joining the Mekons, who were just becoming active again after a short hiatus, in 1985. Bar a two year period from 1991-1993 during which I left the band (not realizing that no-one can ever really leave the Mekons), I've been with them ever since.
In 1988 I moved to Chicago, and got married in 1990. I lived in Chicago for 12 years, playing with a variety of bands, including the Waco Brothers, Archer Prewitt, the Pine Valley Cosmonauts and Poi Dog Pondering. I split up with my wife in 1998 and moved to New York the following year. I married again in 2004, and now live in Greenwich Village with my lovely wife, Alex. Non-Mekons related activities: I play with Megan Reilly (on her 2006 album, Let Your Ghost Go), Laura Cantrell (on her 2005 album, Humming By The Flowered Vine), and Richard Buckne.
